Cerakey Launches Crowdfunding for New Keycap Colors|China Lacquer Colors


On November 14, 2023, Cerakey updated its official X (formerly Twitter) to announce the start of crowdfunding for new color keycaps on INDIEGOGO.

By November 15, the amount of the offering had already exceeded the planned amount, indicating the popularity of the program.

  • Crowdfunding end date: December 15, 2023
  • Scheduled product shipment date: May 2024
  • Amount of support: 2,267 yen to 65,982 yen
  • Product website: INDIEGOGO

The coloring is Azure (blue), Jade (green), Amber (red), Floral (marble), and Bloosom (pink), each in traditional Chinese lacquer colors.

This time, in addition to the above colors, a black color is also available, and to our surprise, the Legend features cut-out shells (shells) used in guitar position marks and other decorations.

This is too much luxury.

It also appears that if the $50K stretch goal is met, two additional colors will be available to choose from.

In the Cerakey V1 model, the cross stem was also made of ceramic and was less precise, so there were some problems with the stem not fitting properly.


Please note that in this crowdfunding, there are no sets available for sale, and you will be able to select the set you wish to support (purchase).

The price is a concern, but it is still a bit expensive, partly because of the fact that it is so ornately decorated.

Please refer to the price list below.
